STATESVILLE, NC - Iredell Home Health recently received accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Health Care for its commitment to providing the highest quality of service for patients and meeting established facility standards.

As part of Iredell Health System, Iredell Home Health was acquired by Iredell Memorial Hospital in 1998 and both were accredited through The Joint Commission.

“Over the past few years, we’ve researched and felt a transition to an accrediting organization with a focus on home health and hospice was a better fit for our organization,” said Linda Thompson, Director of Iredell Home Health.

Accreditation is a process to demonstrate the commitment and capability of healthcare organizations in accordance with national standards. ACHC is a non-profit organization that has been recognized as a trusted accreditation body since 1986. With its ISO 9001:2015 certification, ACHC has CMS deeming authority for Home Health, Hospice, and DMEPOS.

ACHC accredited Iredell Home Health through an on-site survey along with policy reviews, procedural reviews, process improvements, and staff education which ultimately leads to quality of Home Health services for its patients.

“Our quality of care was made evident in the visits made by the surveyor to our patients. During home visits, the surveyor was most impressed with the positive regard our patients have for the staff caring for them,” Thompson said,

Iredell Home Health offers affordable healthcare services to patients in Iredell and surrounding counties. It allows patient's independence by taking care of them in the comfort of their homes. This is made possible with well-trained nurses, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and other highly qualified employees.
